Cytaty William Carlos Williams

you give me ancient star:Shine alone in the sunrise
toward which you lend no part!“

— William Carlos Williams

„Saxifrage is my flower that splits
the rocks.“

— William Carlos Williams
Context: Let the snake wait under his weed and the writing be of words, slow and quick, sharp to strike, quiet to wait, sleepless. — through metaphor to reconcile the people and the stones. Compose. (No ideas but in things) Invent! Saxifrage is my flower that splits the rocks. "A Sort of a Song"

„Still, the profound change
has come upon them: rooted, they
grip down and begin to awaken.“

— William Carlos Williams
Context: Lifeless in appearance, sluggish dazed spring approaches — They enter the new world naked, cold, uncertain of all save that they enter. All about them The cold, familiar wind — Now the grass, tomorrow the stiff curl of wildcarrot leaf One by one objects are defined — It quickens: clarity, outline of leaf But now the stark dignity of entrance — Still, the profound change has come upon them: rooted, they grip down and begin to awaken. "Spring and All"

„I thought my friends were damn fools, because they didn't know any better way of conducting their lives. Still they conformed better than I to a code. I wanted to conform but I couldn't so I wrote my poetry.“

— William Carlos Williams
Context: !-- I'm tired of everything I wrote in these formative years. I was always searching for a regular format of the line, just as I wanted to be regular in my life — to conform. But --> I thought my friends were damn fools, because they didn't know any better way of conducting their lives. Still they conformed better than I to a code. I wanted to conform but I couldn't so I wrote my poetry. Annotations on John C. Thirlwell's copy of The Collected Earlier Poems (c. 1958)

„If so I look for a development along these lines and will be satisfied with nothing else.“

— William Carlos Williams
Context: There is no poetry of distinction without formal invention, for it is in the intimate form that works of art achieve their exact meaning, in which they most resemble the machine, to give language its highest dignity, its illumination in the environment to which it is native. Such war, as the arts live and breathe by, is continuous. It may be that my interests as expressed here are pre-art. If so I look for a development along these lines and will be satisfied with nothing else. Introduction

„I lie here thinking of you:— the stain of love
is upon the world!“

— William Carlos Williams
Context: I lie here thinking of you:— the stain of love is upon the world! "Love Song"

„A man isn’t a block that remains stationary though the psychologists treat him so — and most take an insane pride in believing it.“

— William Carlos Williams
Context: A man isn’t a block that remains stationary though the psychologists treat him so — and most take an insane pride in believing it. Consistency! He varies; Hamlet today, Caesar tomorrow; here, there, somewhere — if he is to retain his sanity, and why not? The arts have a complex relation to society. The poet isn’t a fixed phenomenon, no more is his work. Introduction

„The War is the first and only thing in the world today.“

— William Carlos Williams
Context: The War is the first and only thing in the world today. The arts generally are not, nor is this writing a diversion from that for relief, a turning away. It is the war or part of it, merely a different sector of the field. Introduction http://www.poetryfoundation.org/learning/essay/237888

„Why do I write today? The beauty of
the terrible faces
of our nonentities
stirs me to it“

— William Carlos Williams
Context: Why do I write today? The beauty of the terrible faces of our nonentities stirs me to it: colored women day workers— old and experienced— returning home at dusk, in cast off clothing faces like old Florentine oak. "Apology"

„I think
of the poetry
of René Char
and all he must have seen
and suffered
that has brought him
to speak only of
sedgy rivers,
of daffodils and tulips
whose roots they water“

— William Carlos Williams
Context: I think of the poetry of René Char and all he must have seen and suffered that has brought him to speak only of sedgy rivers, of daffodils and tulips whose roots they water, even to the free-flowing river that laves the rootlets of those sweet-scented flowers that people the milky way "To a Dog Injured in the Street"

„Lift your flowers
on bitter stems
chickory!“

— William Carlos Williams
Context: Lift your flowers on bitter stems chickory! Lift them up out of the scorched ground! Bear no foliage but give yourself wholly to that! Strain under them you bitter stems that no beast eats — and scorn greyness! "Chicory and Daisies"

„Each speech having its own character, the poetry it engenders will be peculiar to that speech also in its own intrinsic form.“

— William Carlos Williams
Context: Each speech having its own character, the poetry it engenders will be peculiar to that speech also in its own intrinsic form. The effect is beauty, what in a single object resolves our complex feelings of propriety. Introduction

dazed spring approaches —
They enter the new world naked,
cold, uncertain of all
save that they enter.“

„I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox“

— William Carlos Williams
Context: I have eaten the plums that were in the icebox and which you were probably saving for breakfast Forgive me they were delicious so sweet and so cold "This Is Just to Say"
